    2:00 - 3:01pm PST  

2:00pm
8:00 p.m. tonight we'll explore the other side of the holidays that we're missing. a good laugh and to be laughed at. sometimes it's just priceless. >> almost a disaster. we're at our new north pole studio in mill pete as, california. can you believe us? i'm greg and kimberly, and she snow-skis on a wish bone, dana perino. surprise, this is "the five." >> the white house has spoken. the obamacare web site is success and by their measure, why not look at other government successes. the postal service, the dmv, green jobs, war on drugs, the irs, obamacare hit rock bottom. a high-speed train to failure.
2:01pm
is it really a success even by their own claims? maybe, much like a one dimensional town in a gun smoke episode, it looks real but don't lean on it. it could fall. signing up for obama car is like poking root kill with a. the only movement is from the stick. like mine after five day thursday the tropics it ain't working. so, obamacare's real success is showing the gulf between public and private standards. private profits from pleasure to standards are high. publicken sures survival. failure unmeasured blossoms, requiring more bureaucrats to manage the disaster so instead of putting out a fire we hire more arsonis arsonists but demos shouldn't fret.
2:02pm
this may pass if the republicans chase sillier stuff. small pointless battles help deflect from obama's hellful right now the president is hospital at the hall and just gave the right a brand new car. its up to them if the choose door number two. sound like you're yelling. >> yes, but look amazing. >> dana, they're saying -- >> they set themselves up for the deadline. no mary what looked like -- >> if they believe it is going to be true. >> why are you laughing at me? >> these shots are a little odd. when it's -- these shots
2:03pm
are a little odd. they're coming at you when you're talking. i can't pick my nose. >> four points that are very quick, then you can move on to someone who doesn't look so weird. >> okay. i think they have deeper problems than this website. the first one is the price. the sticker shock is a problem. as you said, obama care doesn't cover sticker shock. it's not just on the premiums. it's on the deductibles. the number of young people not participa participating. that is going to continue to be like the jeng ga game, pulling that piece out. the third one is choice. you were choice of doctor. people are starting to see how narrow their choices are going to be. the fourth one is the legal challenges which are mount up. when the supreme court decides to look at one key part of it, that also makes it more difficult to get on message and stay on message if their policy isn't working out. >> i counted five things. >> well, you know, that was a bonus. bonus round. >> so eric they said 125,000
2:04pm
people signed up versus a prediction of 800,000. that's like a pitcher's batting average. >> i'll take it one step further. what they're saying now that it's working or 80% of the time is that they can handle 50,000 people at a time and they hope to handle 800,000 in a day. a little point of reference, fedex will deliver 22 million packages today. amazon website handled 1.1 million requests per hour. walmart.com processed last thursday 400 million page views. and ebay will have over 4 million page views in a day. so nowhere near what the private sector can do. it's a perfect example. if you're in college and you're going to business school and you want to go, how does government stack up compared to private industry, take a look at these, the numbers are right in your face. by the way, wait until the security problems start kicking in. one of the boxes you have to check to sign up for health care is that you agree that you have no reasonable expectation of privacy. >> that should have been my sixth point. >> they're giving you every reason to believe you have no
2:05pm
reasonable expectation. >> and here's the point, like i always say, what good is the front end if you don't have a back end? and that's what the problem is. >> you ain't got that problem. >> i'm telling you, because so far, the front end of this is working, the back end is not. individualings are not able to verify they, in fact, have coverage. greg is afraid to make eye contact with me. >> i'm just thinking that you work the front and the back end equally. >> i try to do my part. this website doesn't. that's the problem for americans that are relying on coverage or for doctors to get the proper information, to collect information. you won't be able to verify you have coverage. that's the problem. >> the back end. >> the back end. >> speaking of the back end. >> bob. >> no, bob is -- >> poor bob. >> unnecessary. at least that wasn't me. that was dana. >> unnecessary roughness. >> she took an easy shot. kathleen sebelius, her tip was
2:06pm
to use the website during peak hours. that's like saying shop for christmas in march. >> number one, my ear piece is too loud so if you're trying to talk to me, i took it out. >> that explains a lot. >> secondly, let me just say that all this doom and gloom you all predict, it may happen, it may not. in california, it's been a raging success. kentucky, it's been a raging success. people who never had health insurance before now have it. washington state, the same thing. interesting about those states, they're the ones where the democratic governors set up their own computers for exchanges. where the republicans governors who are hellbent on stopping people from getting health care reform. i grant you the federal government couldn't handle it but if the republican governors and their legislatures had stopped paying politics and agreed to do something -- >> then the website would have workeded? >> there wouldn't have been as many people on the website. >> can you define raging success? is 90% failure away from your goal a raging success because so
2:07pm
far they've only signed upped technically -- >> they signed up about 43,000 -- >> okay, look at -- >> who have not had insurance before. >> they may get a million by the end of december -- >> you keep saying it's going to be cost, costs. you know with these new insurance policies -- >> i'm just using your words, where do liberal, get off calling this a raging success? >> i said in states where it wasn't republican obstructionism. >> you blame it on republicans? >> of course. >> can you imagine what constitutes a failure? what could be a failure? >> excuse me, the number of people getting these insurance policies, yes, they have to pay higher premiums but they will be spending much less for health care because they had lousy insurance policies before, they had to shell out a lot of money out of pocket, and on these new plan, they won't have to. the last thing i'll say, i talkeded to a guy who had 400 employees, he said, this talk
2:08pm
about throwing employees off their health insurance, he said, nobody's going to do that, that's crazy. >> i like your science there. some guy you talked to told you that. >> he owns a company. 400 employees. >> yeah, but we can't use vivid video as an example. >> they have more than that. >> i want to talk about obama's polling number. he was interviewed by i think her name is barbara walters. a delightful woman. about his polling numbers and his popularity and his trustworthiness. let's roll this, shall we? >> are you worried you won't be able to get things done because of this lack of support? >> well, barbara, if you remember, i've gone up and down pretty consistently throughout. the good thing about when you're down is that usually when you nowhere to go but up. >> it's hard to sit opposite you, mr. president, and say this, but a lot of the criticism, it's personal.
2:09pm
people just don't think you're trustworthy. >> i don't think that's true, barbara. the truth of the matter is i got re-elected. in part because people did think i was trustworthy and they knew i was working on their behalf. >> strange answer. >> yes. >> strange answer. strange prep for that answer, i have to say. >> really, what would you say? >> i think he could have said, barbara, i've seen those numbers and they concern me. want the american people to know they can trust me and i'm working hard on their behalf. something instead of "well, i don't think that's true." it's barbara walters looking at the gallup poll. >> it's amazing to me, in today's american politic, things move rather rapidly, and i guarantee the republicans figure out a way to do something that will increase obama's poll numbers. >> i agree it also because, a the republicans will always be the viable villain for the media. they're going to find something that the republicans do next that will take away. because obama is their guy.
2:10pm
>> hopefully, the republicans are smart enough to stay out of obama care. you wonder why it's the topic every single day. because it needs to be -- >> how about something of their own -- >> but it shouldn't be contraceptives, it shouldn't be gay marriage. it should be health care.gov, obama care going forward, because this is an epic fail. by the way, as soon as the website's back up and rolling, then you get into the real problems with obama care. >> can you tell me what the republican agenda is for the next year? >> we have obama care. that's what it should be. >> no, i'm talking about all for next year. nothing? nothing? >> that's their job -- >> it used to be climate change. >> greg, the problem is dana hit it on the head, because this guy is a discounter. he's not going to acknowledge any kind of failure. he can't even accept the fact the american people distrust this. she asked a great question. he dodged it and missed a great opportunity to connect with the people, to let him know he actually cares, to show some
2:11pm
humility, that he wants to earn their trust, and say something about how he's going to do that. because just blaming it on the republicans and everyone else all the time or bad polling isn't cutting it. >> he should have done something different. or take the opportunity to say, by the way, my trust numbers are down and i can understand why the republican trust numbers are down to 9% -- >> i think that hurts him. the the more he does that, the more people go, we have heard enough about that. what about you, president for the next three year, let's get going. >> if the election were today, he would not be re-elected. >> that's the thing, he's not -- >> i'm sorry if you're a trend read, and you are, the polling trend is down. he's under water 11%. and it's getting wilder and worse. you can't step up and say this is it. >> there's only two ways to bring your number back up. do something significant, which i don't think there's much to do. or have the opposition party
2:12pm
screw up. i think they will. >> or war. >> or go to war. >> or economic numbers which they could get some better ones this week possibly. >> they said the economy's supposed to grow, according to baron's. it was supposed to grow 1.7% -- >> or find another bin laden. >> this might change everything this is david fluff, is that his name, david fluff? >> close enough. >> on this week talking about when we expect obama care to work. i think this is a bright part of the rainbow, whatever that means. >> may take until 2017 when this president leaves office. you're going to see almost every state in this country running their exchanges and expanding medicaid. i think it will work really well then. >> there you go, 2017. that's right around the corner, kids. >> it's going to be awesome when he's out of office, that's what he's saying. >> if we just believe in the greater good, this will work out. >> just remember, it took medicare a good six or seven years before it got settled down to work.
2:13pm
>> now it works. >> don't you think it does? >> no. >> you want to privatize it, don't you? >> i would like to. >> that's not what paul ryan says. >> let's not minimize what it is. i'm saying let people keep more of their own money in taxes and let's not fund a program that, frankly, isn't working, and rife with waste, fraud and abuse. >> and vouchers, right? >> what's wrong with re-examining it and taking a closer look and being more fiscally responsible, while at the same time providing good quality care for americans? >> the thing is, any time a republican offers some kind of option, it is demonizing as being greedy or pushing grandma off the cliff. it would be great if both sides analyzeded what options were out there together equally. >> they did that. they tried that with simpson/bowles and look what happens. >> i don't know what that is. >> you don't remember? >> no. directly ahead, for some reason, today is cyber monday. could drone delivery be in our new future? and later, barbara walters, a
2:14pm
saint, releases her list of the ten most fascinating people of the year. the burning question? why do we care? that debate and more coming up on "the five."
2:15pm
2:16pm
2:17pm
2:18pm
♪ it's a great day to be alive all right, cyber monday is sheer. while online shopping is already very convenient for millions of americans, and we should know, could you imagine if your christmas packages were delivered to your doorstep in a few minutes by a miniature drone? sounds like science fiction but it could become reality. amazon's ceo unveiled his amazing plan for the not so distance future last night on "60 minutes." >> these octo coppers. these are effectively drones, but there's no reason that they can't be used as delivery vehicles. drops the package. >> there's the package. >> come and get your package.
2:19pm
we can do half hour delivery. >> half hour delivery? >> half hour delivery. we can carry objects up to five pounds. which covers 86% of the items we deliver. could it be, you know, four, five years? i think so. it will work and it will happen and it's going to be a lot of fun. >> all right, kimberly, that's the free market at work, lots of innovation, ideas coming out of amazon. this one, though, really got people bothered. >> why? >> a little background. the pr people at amazon told "60 minutes" i have a big surprise for you, and they were like, we've seen this all before. but it was and it got everybody talking. but you like the drone idea? >> i love shopping. i love amazon.com. i'm a prime member. i love drones against bad guys. if they want to bring presents, they can do that too. i love fact you can order something. the immediacy of it. think it's good for the economy and retail confidence.
2:20pm
i like the technology behind it. i'm sure they'll work it out. >> they're going to need an air traffic controllers at your house to take the number of drones that are coming down. >> you ain't kidding, bob. >> let me ask eric, does this give you hives, the idea of the private sector and drones and the ability of anybody to do this? >> i think what he did was -- he doesn't really think he's going to be delivering packages in 30 minutes via drone. i think what he's doing is saying we're going to continue to innovate, continue to find the next best thing to bring things to the customer faster, cheaper, better, in interesting ways. this doesn't look logical. how are you going to get something 30 minutes? >> you get a pizza from dominos, 30 minutes or your money back. >> you don't even get that. they pulled that offer because they were giving away too many pizzas. i think he's very smart. the thing about bezos, though, amazon doesn't even make a profit. it's worth, you know, hundreds of billions of dollars and can't turn a profit yet. what they're doing is they're showing the world they can
2:21pm
innovate. nope, they're not profitable. >> just in time to save the day, government announced they're going to be holding hearings about this. you think that's a good idea? >> you know what's a good idea, if these are miniature drone, you should be the spokesperson. >> great, i could fly on them? >> that was an insult. >> i'm thinking it could be job security. better than elf on a shelf. >> i'm looking way ahead. this isn't about delivering things, it's about you going places you don't have to go to. if you have to go to a meet, a droerngs which is equipped with a camera and a speaker, you can go to a meeting as your drone. pretty soon, there will be drone parties. because i don't like going out. if my wife likes to go, she can go with my drone. my drone can sit there and just listen to kimberly drone on and on about whatever. >> you wish you got invited to my party. >> drones will replace people for actionings that we don't want to do. >> drones are going to start drinking and it's going to be a terrible night. >> bob, you can date a drone,
2:22pm
it's going to be exciting. >> i've dated plenty of drones, believe me. >> when it comes to the innovation in the private sector, do you think -- i was thinking last night watching that because there's such a contrast between health care.gov and obama care versus what they can do, innovate. >> you're seeing the elimination of the human being in the system, in the sale cycle. people want -- amazon delivers groceries to people's homes. you don't have to go to a brick and mortar grocery store anymore. it will be delivered from a distribution center. technology is replace the human being with drones and trucks and things like that. so -- but it is more efficient. i'm all for it. >> we have a second great topic. i'm going to ask if we can hold this for tomorrow, about the minimum wage. i'm going to ask bob, have you done any online shopping? >> i do all online shopping. i can't stand the people, i can't stand the teenagers with their pants down around their
2:23pm
ankles and all the teenage girls look like hookers and all the baseball capped turned on sideways. i can't stand it. >> $600 tanning cream skwlin, you got ripped off? >> no, i didn't get ripped off. >> that's a good point. let me just -- >> let me ask a serious question -- >> -- avoid online scams. >> can i ask a serious question? on a serious note. how many people you think are going to lose -- how much will it replace people, these mechanical things? >> i know where you're going with this, bob. that's the reason why obama care can't create enough jobs -- >> because productivity's getting so much better. >> innovation has improved. >> that means there's going to be people -- >> displaced. >> you know what's worse, when the better robots replace the older robots. what about the older robots? where are they going to go? they have feelings too. what about the toasters?
2:24pm
the robot toaster? >> they all end up in your basement. >> i lost total control of this segment. if you go on the facebook.com -- what is it, the five facebook -- the five facebook page, we have tips to avoid scams that can happen to you if you're shopping online. you can find it online as well. up next, the lightning round on three hot topics in the news. bob and i are taking victory laps after calling winners of some big games this weekend. ron burgundy does the local news in dakota. and new details about the tragic death of paul walker. ready to run your lines?

and fun lightning round. three stories in the news today. first up, best football game ever. if you missed alabama at auburn, here's the unbelievable winning touchdown off a missed field goal against the national champions oh, by the way, with no time left on the clock. >> the back of the end zone. he'll run it out to the 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. 45. there goes davis! oh, my gosh. davis is going to run it all the way back. auburn's going to win the football game! auburn ace going to win the football game! >> all right, mr. bob beckle, you won the bet, take your victory lap, my man. >> first of all that guy, that announcer man, i'll tell you be he's not going to be able to speak for weeks. why did the alabama coach after having his place kicker miss two field goals from 30 yards decide to do that from 56 yards out? because we had the dinner, i would ask you to take me to say,
2:30pm
whatever that -- >> per se. >> per se. which you can afford. it's french. i don't like french so i'm not going to go. >> i think i could be invited to go because i correctly predicted that auburn would win because my friend susan went there. >> i don't get any respect for my football knowledge. >> we had a hidden camera in bob's den. look at how happy he is just over winning a dinner bet. watch. >> go, go! you can run it out! you can run it out! go, go, go! oh, my god, oh, my god, oh, my god, oh, my god! oh! oh, my god! we did it! we did it! >> we've all been there, bob. congratulations. good job. >> my sister's granddaughter -- i'm only kidding. >> what is wrong with bob?
2:31pm
>> i love college football because it's exciting, you never know what's going to happen. they play it much more fast and loose, take chances which makes it exciting to watch. >> great game. you called it. >> i did. >> i think it's disgusting that as a show we would celebrate a violent sport whose only primary goal is to win. i feel bad for the losing players. i don't think in these games there should be scores. there shouldn't be contact. and there shouldn't be a ball. i find this whole thing repulsive. by the way, the greatest game over, 1982, stanford with the play. this is disgusting. >> i'll take this over that because -- >> you didn't see that game. >> liook how awesome american sports are. >> anyway, let's move on. ron burgundy is a fictional anchor man. an amazing brand build, doing dodge commercial, the leno show, and this weekend he delivered a
2:32pm
full local newscast in character. folks, "orananchor man." >> i'm amber shots. >> and i'm ron burgundy. thank you for joining us tonight. amber, you look lovely. >> thank you. >> are you married? >> no. >> i am so don't get any ideas. >> there's also mo-vember for mustaches. >> i'm fond of those. >> how long did it take you to grow out that bad boy? >> about 20 minutes. >> impressive. >> you guys did a good job tonight. that was a good warm-up. >> greg. >> i guess it's funny but i don't need to see this because i see this every day. anyway. >> yeah, what time do you see this, greg? >> funny thing about this is the joke is on them. that's the funny thing. >> i thought it was very humorous. >> that's true. >> it is true. >> it is true. i love local news. i love it. i love watching local news. >> i love new york 1. >> for us to sit here and go,
2:33pm
ha, ha. i thought she was great. >> what happened to your sense of humot out of the country? >> what about you, anchor man? >> i thought he did a great job. no reason -- no problem with going to north dakota. they've got some great anchor people everywhere. great news people around america. when that kid was jumping up and down, he pulled that kid next to him on to the floor. i didn't mean my sister's granddaughter got killed -- >> we got it. >> bob, wow, wow, wow. >> i'm excited to see it. i think he's supertalented and funny. a hard worker. great promoter. >> great point. this guy is make the anchor man brand bigger and better. >> i actually might go to the movie theater. >> i don't need it to be bigger. i need him to turn down the emotion a little bit. a tragic life imitating art. actor paul walker was the star of the hit movies "fast and furious." he was in the passenger's seat of his friend's car when they hit a pole, killing both. died tragically in the very same style his movies embraced.
2:34pm
k.j., a loss for a lot of people. >> i'm a big fan of paul walker. i think he's a really good actor. he's a great father. he has a little girl he's leaving behind so i'm very sad for her to grow up, you know, without her father. i know what that's like from my mother's side. but, you know, he'll be missed. he was, in fact, making one of the installments of the "fast and furious" series at the time of his death. >> the one where they pulled the bank vault out of the -- i thought he was a good actor, very sad. >> crazy he died in the same way, same genre as his movies. >> i never saw the movie. i do feel bad for his family. he had a lot of fans. >> he did. vin diesel. i'm sure he misses him. >> yes, it's sad when people die. it's not tragic. there were four people that were killed in a derailment in a train who weren't racing.
2:35pm
they died randomly in a horrible way. injured 63 people in new york city. it was a very, very bad accident. why are we talking about this guy? because he's famous and he raced cars. those people on the train, they weren't famous, they didn't race cars. so it's sad, but tragedy is when it happens randomly. >> it sounds like the train was -- 82 into a 32. latest news on that. >> directly ahead, what do miley cyrus, the pope and the stars of duck dynasty have in common? they're on the list of barbara walter's most fascinating people of 2013. next on "the five." and ah, so you can see like right here i can just...
2:36pm
you know, check my policy here, add a car, ah speak to customer rvice, check on a claim...you know, all with the ah, tap of my geico app. oh, that's so cool. well, i would disagree with you but, ah, that would make me a liar. no dude, you're on the jumbotron! whoa. ah...yeah, pretty much walked into that one. geico anywhere anytime. just a tap away on the geico app.
2:37pm
2:38pm
2:39pm
2:40pm
the robertson family have "duck dynasty." reality star kim car dashian and fiance kanye west. some of barbara walter's most fascinating people of 2013. also on the list, jennifer lawance, gp ma anchor robin roberts, miley cyrus, prince george, rt royal baby, long distance swimmer diana nyad and pop francis. i know you're incredibly excited about kim and kanye. >> to put those people on the same list as the pope, it's unbelievable to me. first of all, i feel sorry for their kid to have kanye and kardashian plastic as their mother. beyond that, miley cyrus, are you kidding me?
2:41pm
they got a porn convention every year in las vegas, she could win out there. >> so glad we started with bob. >> interesting list. i'm try to figure, it's supposed to be the most fascinating people so is it the most fascinating celebrates? if you eliminate celebrities which is what i would do, it would come down to -- like the duck dynasty people. it would be the pope. i think he's amazingly fascinating. number two would be ed snowden. a guy who literally changed what's going on in american politics. >> bolling, look at your picks back there on our banner. most fascinating. snowd snowden, pope francis. i hope the winner is in the middle because miley, my goodness, interesting. >> i look forward to the barbara walters special every year because -- i know greg's going to say this is lame, but i like those end of the year lists to say, okay, look back -- >>cy do think the miley cyrus pick was purely for ratings and
2:42pm
not for content. i don't find her fascinating. >> there's content there but it ain't in the -- >> i do think she missed an opportunity to find somebody in philanthropy. and maybe pick somebody obscure or somebody -- like a younger person that's doing something amazing around the world like this pencils of promise we learned about. or someone from -- >> also there were several medal of honor recipients that could have been chosen. they don't make the list. they're not on the cover of "people" magazine. >> kim kardashian and kanye, anyway, please it can't be them, there's no way. greg, please say something nice and contribute to this segment. >> i'm not. human beings don't walk around and say i'm fascinated by something. you don't sit around and go, oh, look at that, that's fascinating. fascinating is a fake word created by people in print and tv when they have nothing else to say. it's a stupid fake word. persons, individuals in and of
2:43pm
themselves are not fascinating. phenomena are fascinating. why we're living here on this planet. that's fascinating concept. but when you look at a person, you don't go, ooh, that's fascinating. i hate stories like this. hate the idea of doing it on the show. it's stupid it it. it's a waste of time. >> did you ever play the grinch before when you were -- >> yes, i did, on fox and friends and they edited it out, it was so bad. come on, do you walk around and go, ooh, that's fascinating? >> about miley cyrus -- >> -- have nothing to say when -- >> i think it's more like the idea of people are interesting -- >> you think miley cyrus is interesting? >> try to kick a 57-yard field goal when it's never happened by this kicker in alabama history. >> that's interesting. >> that's kind of fascinating. >> dana, since you like to participate in these segments, i'm for sure going to miss it because i love watching these specials. i find them interesting and fascinating. >> yes, because she's important. >> i think she is important for
2:44pm
what she's contributed to journalism, especially as a woman. dana, we know a lot of these people. 2012, the winner, general david petraeus. that was a great choice. >> well deserved. he'd won it before as well in 2010. >> little trivia right there. >> now you got kim kardashian. what a comparison. >> j.k. rowling, nancy pelosi. laura bush. karl rove. hillary clinton. lance armstrong. mother theresa. very good choice. prince williams. the royals. and nelson mandela. barbara will pick a winner again this year. good choice. >> -- whatever her name is. >> kim-ye. coming up, a disturbing new poll shows americans don't trust each other very much anymore.

one of the nutty things that makes america great is we're for the most part friendly people.
2:49pm
easy to get along with and trust worthy. that may be eroding. according to a poll, surprisingly one-third of americans say most people can be trusted as opposed to '72 when almost half the country felt that way. a record high say you can't be too careful in dealing with others. this is when the crime rates are down all over. there's got to be a reason for this. what do you think, eric? >> i don't know that the crime rate's high. i think violent crime is down. the thefts and the bernie madoff things and those types. i don't trust liberals. i don't trust anyone with my medical records. >> you had to bring it to that. okay. >> i think these numbers track the way people feel about the general direction of the country. a country on the wrong track or the right track. i think this is similar. i also think it has to do with the major institutions failing
2:50pm
people. you can look at the catholic church and what happened in the '80s and '90s. i think that affected a lot of people. government doesn't live up to expectations. if you look at the financial crisis of the fall of like even that institution would let them down, so i don't know if it's in the personal relationships, your neighbor to neighbor, but certainly institutions have fallen away. >> greg. >> i think it's a couple of things. one, i think it's our fault, it's the media. consumer reporters have made it impossible to trust anyone. they're always doing something where they're catching somebody trying to rip you off. think about all the health scares and the media scares of the '80s and the '90s, whether it was heavy metal being satanic. we were supposed to be wary of anybody that was a stranger. hitchhiking was bad, food scares are bad. we created a divisive nation. we have people more interested in who they are in ethnicity or
2:51pm
gender or whatnot instead of what they do and i think that creates a lot of resentment between people. i think that's a huge thing. then i think maybe it's not a bad thing, maybe it's okay to be skeptical. >> agree with that. what's wrong with not trusting. >> you wouldn't know how to exist without being it would th off your game. what do i do now? hey. this is not a surprise because we had pretty much six years of economic downturn, we had wall street collapse, we had bank bailouts, we had chronic long-term unemployment. sorry to be debbie downer, but these are the things, the realities of the everyday life in existence of americans so of course they're going to be a little skeptical, plus they're more well informed in terms of ability to get news and information from a wide variety of sources, whether you go online or cable news or read newspapers, et cetera. so it's all out there. i think if we continue to pull ourselves out of this and prosper as a nation, people might get a better attitude. >> my view is it has a lot to do
2:52pm
with isolation. i think people are spending less an less time engaging one another. they are in the internet, they're sitting at home, they're going on twitter, they're doing all these things that keep them away -- when was the last time that you saw anybody write a personal note to somebody, handwritten note. the idea of engaging people, i think you've got to trust people when you engage them. if you don't engage them and you're hiding out on the internet or playing those ridiculous video games, i think that's part of it. >> a lot of crimes get -- when we talk about cincinnati or is it cleveland, neighbors weren't looking out for each other. >> exactly right. >> i want to trust you. i want to trust you. >> we're borrowing the studio, by the way, because we got thrown out of another, lower rated show. all right, one more thing is up next. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing.
2:53pm
so my dog and i we're going to go find it. it's out there somewhere spreading the good word about idaho potatoes and raising money for meals on wheels. but we'd really like our truck back, so if you see it, let us know, would you? thanks. what?

it's time for "one more thing." let's start with k.g. you have something very deep. >> i have something deep and important. i'd like to take the next four and a half minutes, please don't interrupt me because it's your birthday, baby. happy birthday, britney jean. it is her 32nd birthday today. she was born december 2nd, 1981. britney spears. >> i love bob doesn't know her. >> she's releasing her next album called "britney jean"

2:58pm
i do that when i'm drunk. >> oh, boy. >> e.b. >> i had a twitter war with someone, i don't want to mention who he writes for, oliver something. >> you're drinking from the cup? >> so here are the real numbers, here are the facts. these are the real numbers. under president obama, four years obama's economy, he's created 1.4 million jobs. 927,000 of those jobs are part-time jobs, leaving only 456,000 jobs in four years and during that same period of time, check this out, 11 million people left the workforce, given up, guys. you do the math. if that's success, i hate to see what failure is. >> oh, yeah. >> bob snoring, stretching, burping. >> that was interesting. >> thank you, eric. something happened over the weekend you might not have heard about but you can help participate for people who care about freedom. ukrainian brothers and sisters who peacefully protested in the
2:59pm
ukraine today in kiev over the weekend because their government tried to move them away from europe and closer to a russian position. that is not what the people of ukraine want. there is a twitter hash tag, #euromaiden. i understand they're in a tough spot, they have to use diplomatic language about fostering a better environment. but if you care about freedom, you can show your support through twitter, #euromaiden. call anybody, try to help them, don't help putin. >> this is a hard story because it's complicated. >> it's complicated, but i try to tackle the big stuff. >> no, i'm glad you talked about this, it's important, but nobody is covering it. >> yeah, you've only got 20 seconds for you. >> all right. banned phrase. i can't believe at this ban this. i checked it out, i've never banned going viral. >> reban it if you did. >> it should only being used in a medical office, it should not
3:00pm
be used when describing something on the internet. it just means something has gotten popular. >> you didn't say what it was. >> going viral? >> yeah. >> i lost interest. >> don't miss an episode of "the five." we'll see you back here tomorrow. "special report" is next. the new and improved obama care website. significant changes or cyberspace smoke and mirrors? this is "special report." good evening, i'm bret baier. while you were chowing down on turkey dinners and leftovers this weekend, the computer technicians behind the healthcare.gov website were frantically working to get their digital ducks in a row. today it was time to see if it all worked. we have fox team coverage tonight. bret is on how democrats may pay a heavy political price for obama care. jim angle with what
